Your group will serve St. Louis in a variety of ways, often crossing racial and geographic lines. YouthWorks partners with a number of organizations to come alongside St. Louis’s homeless population, local children, and the elderly. You may find yourselves playing bingo, cooking meals, painting houses, shooting hoops, sorting clothes or spending time with community residents. In the evenings, you’ll host a well-attended community cookout. You’ll also engage in discussions around race and poverty from a Christian mindset. The trip is open to students currently in 8th grade or higher and adults. Approximate trip cost is $500. A $50 deposit is required at signup.
